Quote:The animals fell from the trees as they were boiled alive in temperatures exceeding 40C in Campbelltown in New South Wales.

Animal welfare volunteers battled to save the lives of the hundreds of babies and some adults in distress but the death toll is believed to be in the thousands.

A spokesman from the charity Help Save the Wildlife and Bushlands in Campbelltown said: "The efforts of our volunteers yesterday was both heroic and heartbreaking.

"In extremely trying conditions they worked tirelessly to provide sub-cutaneous fluids to the pups that could be reached and many lives were saved.

"But sadly many lives were lost too.

"Hundreds of mainly young flying-foxes were lost to the heat yesterday and the final count could run to thousands."

That's just sad beyond words.
Glad they were able to save a few of the pups.
This heat must be really taking a toll on peeps and animals down under.

Terrible and they say the sweltering sand heat determines the sex of sea turtles...most are now female.
